Hello everyone! In my main CK game, the one I'm making my Nubian AAR about (see link in my sig), I'm currently decades ahead in game time and weeks ahead in written updates. I don't want to keep getting farther ahead. I also don't want to stop playing CK. Leading to this:
This is an AAR based on my secondary CK game. It will not have regular updates, as I will just be playing the game when I get the urge and it's not practical to play my Nubian game. I'll also be changing the style and going with a history book format, just to shake things up a bit.
A little background to the game. I was trying to think of something I hadn't played much and realized that every French game I started I had made a rush for Burgundy, so I figured, why not play a French game where I stay French. So I looked for a French count to play in 1066 and found Vermandois. I had already started playing when I discovered the Charlemagne connection, so it was an added bonus.
The main goal I have in this game is to be the best vassal I can be. I won't be seeking a king title, and unless something drastic happens in-game, I'll be loyal to France the whole time. So I'll be successful if I can keep the French kings strong. I've never tried something like this before and I'm curious to see how it will work out.
Oh, and I used the "Die" cheat to get rid of Herbert at the start of the game, because I wanted to start fresh with a new count.
Well enough of me talking, onto the history books...
